Ayinger Oktober Fest Märzen has a deep golden color tinted with amber. It is lightly sweet with a malty nose balanced with floral hops. Its medium to big body and alcohol is not overpowering. The soft dryness comes from long maturation.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours hazy amber color with a white head, aroma of sweet malts, citrus, and hops. Flavor is malty, sweet, citrus, and spice. Not my favorite Oktoberfest, but good.

Dark amber. Small, dense, off white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty caramel, a touch of honey, and subtle, crisp hops. Same flavor with more honey and more hops. Smooth, medium body. One of the best Oktoberfests I’ve had.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours orange in color with a very thin white head. Lots of little bubbles coming to the top. Aroma of bread, caramel, toasted wheat cereal. Very mild flavor, very hard to pick anything out, it is malty, I don’t detect any hops and finishes with a wheat taste that lasts for a little while. A little fruity sweetness comes through as it warms. Medium bodied, but feels a little watered down.

Ratman197 (14070) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2006
500ml bottle poured a clearorange copper with a lasting off white head. Aromas of biscuity malt, carmel and a hint of n9oble hops in the background.Palate was medium to full bodied. Flavors of toasted malt, carmel and just a hint of hops with a smooth dry lingering malty finish. This is one MALTY mother of a beer!

Pours a golden color with a tinge of orange and a big fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet and doughy. Definately has a strong biscuit scent like others have mentioned. Flavor is also very biscuit like, loads of sweet honey like malts with just enough hops on the finish, but could maybe use a tiny bit more. Not a bad beer but I find the overabundant maltiness to make this one a bit dry for may taste.

One of the few beers I was able to rate at my own 2nd annual ides of March beer tasting (3-18-06). Pours light orange and hazy. Light white head. Malty caramel with biscuit aroma. Lightly sweet malt in the taste as well as well balanced hops. More on the malty side but still well balanced with hops making for a very enjoyable beverage. Medium soft - creamy body. As good a lager as I’ve had.

Found this one in the cooler of a nice little packy in Jersey. Though it was way after October I couldn’t help myself given my appreciation of the style. Poors a hazy gold with significant bubbles and a big loose white head. Aroma is primarily fruity yeast (apples), malty undertones, and some flowers. Sitson the tongue well, not a ton of body, but good for a Marzen smooth needless to say. Malt and cereal/bread flavor seeps into the tongue and mouth. A little bit of spice (maybe peppery?) perhaps coming from the floral hop tastes. Towards the end, I felt like I was getting bits of toasted malt flavor too. Relatively high amount of complexity for an Oktoberfest. Even though this isn’t the optimal age for this beer, the flavor is still exceptionally clean with only the hops lingering and then trailing off. This September I’ll keep an eye out for this one to rerate!

Golden, yellow beer with a big fluffy white head. Looks very carbonated. Smells like apples and malty. Flavour is less like apple juice and more of a general sweet fruitiness, though not overwhelming. Flavour is balanced by slight hint of nuts and spices. Clean taste, refreshing.

500 ml bottle - Pours a hazy copper color with a big, lasting head. The aroma is malty, along with the yeast and a hint of hops. It’s medium bodied, smooth, and has a lightly sweet flavor with good balance. The finish is clean with light hops. This beer is a very nice quality Marzen.

This is a really great beer. Only have had Celebrator and this one from Ayinger but so far they are a winning brewer!
